Nursery Coordinator: Jessica Schmidt

The  Nursery is available to children three years of age and younger and is staffed by a volunteer during the 10 am service.  Children are welcome for the entire service, or they can join us when the Sunday school children go to class.  Nursery volunteers normally bring the children up for a blessing during communion.  We get to read books, play with toys, colour and enjoy each others’ company.  We are always looking for additional nursery volunteers too!

Outreach

In the tradition of Holy Saviour, the Outreach Team continues to faithfully support Monica House, St. John’s Kitchen, Anselma House, the House of Friendship, Renison College, Huron Church Camp and other local agencies. The apportionment given to the Diocese that represents a large percentage of our budget is an outreach donation that allows our collective church to achieve broader and more leveraged goals.

The Outreach Team has also generously responded to other requests made of the parish that include monies donated to Supportive Housing of Waterloo, special Diocesan appeals, the Primate’s World Relief Development Fund, and especially the Refugee family from Syria. To volunteer for the Waterloo Deanery Refugee Committee, contact Rebecca Short
